There are millions of families in the world that have experienced the loss of an infant or know someone that has experienced it. However, many women refuse to speak about their experiences and would like to keep the traumatic experience among family and close friends. It is perfectly normal to do so. However, it is one of the worst experiences that can happen to any parent. Not many families know that infants under 16 days are not able to receive burial insurance unless the parents have a rider policy for the infant. In far too many cases, families barely have burial insurance coverage for themselves.
The biggest issue parents encounter is the financial aspect of burying their infant. For many families having the funds to lay their infant to rest can be heart-wrenching and frustrating especially if they are from low-income families. Oftentimes, in these families, there are no resources or programs to help the grieving family.No family should have to endure this hardship or burden, however, many are subjected to this, and it can be very devastating.
Babies that are 20 weeks gestation can be buried or cremated at whatever funeral home or cemetery the family decides to use. The cost of a funeral for this little angel can be expensive. A funeral can start at $5,000 upwards, depending on the service, funeral home, and cemetery. For a family that is caught off guard, this can be a nightmare. This is why Khairi and Little Angels’ Memorial have resources in place for families when they have an experience of this magnitude.
